Hour Homes & Brookstone Homes

Creating Dream Homes For Families since 1988

For 34 years, Hour Homes and our sister company, Brookstone Homes (founded 2001), have successfully developed & built 44 new home communities in Stafford and Spotsylvania counties. We have proudly built and delivered 1,850 new homes to satisfied families.

Michael J. Stonehill, Sr., founded the company and leads this family-run real estate building and development business alongside his four sons. The communities we serve are great, and only an hour drive to D.C. There are excellent schools, strong law enforcement, good shopping, numerous churches, and an outstanding location close to Fredericksburg.

We have made an indelible mark on Stafford county, by developing and building many of the most popular subdivisions in the county. Communities such as Sunningdale Meadows (1988), Stonehill Estates (1994), Kings Crest (1999), Seasons Landing (2008), Berkshire (2008), Poplar Estates (2013), and Churchill Meadows (2017), and we are currently building in Sullivan Estates, Forest Hill Estate, and others. Our newest model home is located in Mountain View Estates at the following address: 2038 Poplar Rd, Fredericksburg, VA 22406.

Being that we exclusively build in Stafford & Spotsylvania Counties, we know this market like the back of our hand. 
We conceive and purchase land directly from local landowners, design all communities, manage our employees and 
subcontractors, and build unparalleled communities in this area.

We employ a faithful and diligent staff of approximately 20 employees with a combined experience of over 65 years! Our number one goal is to build the best communities that Stafford County has to offer! Many of our employees have been with us since the company was founded in 1988. In addition to our staff, we have an exclusive list of incredibly talented & locally based subcontractors, who have also been working with us for over 30+ years. We are big enough to get things done, yet small enough to care about you and your family throughout the building process.

Hour Homes is our “value” line of homes & Brookstone Homes is our “luxury” line of homes, with upgraded standard features. Both companies will build only in the finest hand-picked locations. Nearly all communities that we build in are planned, engineered, and developed (including road building & utilities) "in-house" by our management team.

Our company motto is “We Build Value.” This means that you will receive a home of superior value and quality.
